Amazing Spinach, Ground Chicken and Corn Stuffed Peppers
Recipe By:

Ingredients
  • 1 lb. ground chicken (not too fatty)
  • ¼-1/2 c. chopped jalapenos (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 16 oz. corn macque choux, or frozen corn (thawed, drained)
  • 5 oz. fresh baby spinach
  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3-4 bell peppers, cut in half and seeded
  • Plain bread crumbs
  • Salt, red/black pepper, garlic powder
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese, optional

Instructions
  1. In a pot of salted boiling water, place the prepared bell peppers and cook until tender but not mushy, about 4-5 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. In a medium pot, drizzle a little olive oil and heat.
  3. Place the baby spinach in pot, stir once or twice. Place lid and lower heat. Check in about 2 minutes. Spinach will wilt down. Remove cover and turn off heat. Drain off any excess liquid and cut up spinach into pieces. Set aside.
  4. In a pot, drizzle more olive oil. Heat over medium heat.
  5. Add the ground chicken and jalapenos and the chopped onion. Saute until chicken is cooked. Break up chicken into crumbles. Season.
  6. Add the drained corn (if using macque choux, also drain).
  7. Add the spinach and mix well. If you do not want spinach, skip this step.
  8. Add ¼ c. of the bread crumbs at a time and mix well. If mixture is moist and holds together you do not need to add more bread crumbs. I actually used ½ c. in this recipe.
  9. Season to taste.
  10. Stuff peppers and place in baking dish.
  11. When ready to serve, place in 325 oven until bubbly. The last few minutes of baking, sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese if desired.

Notes
*****You can use ground turkey and other veggies that you might like better.
